I got to know and work on Internet of Things to its depth because of Microsoft IoT competition. Being a finalist I received an Intel Galileo board on which we had to build our project and the backend should be Windows and Azure. It was an awesome 3 months journey in which I learned a lot. We were continuously in communication with Microsoft, Microsoft guys Ujjwal Kumar and Abhishek Narayan guided us. I was so lucky to get introduced with Windows IoT in its early stage. Then I also got a chance to demo my project in the largest Azure Conference, which was held in Pune. We presented there at IoT booth and at the end I got awarded with a certificate and a Nokia Lumia 925 Phone.
